Hi, my name is MURPH and I would love to meet you. I am a Neutered Male Dachshund - Wirehaired and Cairn Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 8 months old. I have been at the shelter since Aug 03, 2016.

Why yes -- yes I AM the cutest dog you ever did meet! My foster mom says I`m like the energizer bunny, I just go go go! I`m looking for a home that can keep up with my high energy personality and has plenty of time for cool activities like hiking, playing extreme fetch in the backyard, and maybe even some doggie sports like agility or lure coursing (lure coursing, look it up at!). I definitely need to have another dog similar in energy levels and play style to wrestle around with, and I`m a little bit too much dog for small children. I really need to have a home with a fenced yard to run off some steam, I am NOT a good match for an apartment lifestyle -- nor will I be content as a lap dog. Baby, I was born to run! For more information about me, please contact my foster family at

Our Adoption Process...

Adopters are asked to fill out a brief survey to help match them with the pet that is right for them.
Adoption fees vary, but the typical fees are: Cats - $60, Dogs - $140, and Rabbits - $75. Pet license fees may also be charged. Dogs, cats and rabbits are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, and dogs and cats are microchipped, and receive initial vaccinations. More information about adoption can be found at
